I hope I'm not committing any trademark infringements by using that title. I know it's a movie or whatever, but this is exactly how I feel. I'm holding my breathe and willing May to be done! Get through the emotional drama of my daughter and her AP test and finals! Get my boy child OUT OF THAT SCHOOL before he gets kicked out! Get past the financial curse we've been under for the last couple of months so my husband will leave me alone about paying for HBO!
The boy's finals are done at this point. Next week is all fun and games, with graduation on Friday. My parents are flying in. It's all good.
The hubby is back from his trip, so luckily there will be no more dead creatures in my pool. That only happens when he is gone. I attended a lovely end-of-the-year party for my ladies golf league this week, so our season is done until the fall.
I did have an unfortunate incident this week, where I accidentally hit a car while in carline at my son's school. It was raining, it was chaos, but still, there you have it. The guy was less than thrilled with me, but we won't be involving the insurance. I get to buy him a new bumper. Remember that curse I mentioned? Yeah. It just keeps coming.
I got my Internet fixed this week, which was huge. It has been really bad for several weeks now. I know I should have called Bright House sooner, but dealing with them is like having a root canal. I can't think of any person or organization that irritates me more.
Reading was decent this week. I finished "Cinder" by Marissa Meyer on audio, and it was just OK for me. Clever twist on Cinderella, but it never graduated beyond silly and predictable to me, and the narrator was very high-pitched and whiny. Be that as it may, I am nothing if not dedicated to finishing what I start, so I just kept going with the second installment of the series "Scarlet". It incorporates the continuing adventures of Cinder, but pulls in another storyline with a twist on Little Red Riding Hood. Same narrator. The library doesn't have the third installment, "Cress", on audio yet. And I see on Goodreads this isn't just a trilogy, because #4 "Winter" is coming next year. Hmmm.
In print I finished Karen White's "The Girl on Legare Street", the second installment in this series. Again, I just keep going! I do enjoy these books, but I've decided they remind me of that TV series "The Ghost Whisperer" that my daughter was obsessed with a number of years ago. They don't have much depth, and they fall into that trope of "the man and woman who are crazy about each other but can't pull it together" kind of thing. But they are easy to read, very Southern, and have interesting ghosts. So. I'm now very excited to say that I'm reading the latest book from Pam Ripling (who writes under the pen name Anne Carter) called "Angel's Gate". She writes a series where each novel revolves around a lighthouse and a mystery. This one is about the Angel's Gate lighthouse in L.A. Great stuff, and very easy reading. This is the third book of hers that I've read and loved.
Not sure what is going on today besides church. The daughter and I have taken a small hiatus from the animal shelter while she gets through her last two weeks of school. Maybe a round of golf? Hope everyone has a great day, and don't forget to watch Game of Thrones tonight!
